Specs: Windows Vista, 2GB
Hey, is it possible to find out who is all on my network. This computer has a modem and a router so I can get internet on a laptop and another PC. I was wondering if there is a possible way where I can view or just see everyone on my network using this main computer just in case of unwanted "visitors", if so would there be a way to disconnect those "visitors"? I hope you understand what I am asking, thanks for your help.

✔ Best Answer
If you're talking about someone using your wireless signal, open the web interface of the router. You can see what IP addresses were issued by DHCP. I use static IP addresses to lessen the chances of unwanted users.

If you're talking about someone connected to your system through your modem, reboot your machine, don't open anything except a command prompt and run
netstat -an
Look at the foreign address column for unwanted connections.
